PARKLAND POST NO. 223 AMERICAN LEGION lVIcetings every second and fourth Friday at 8 :00 p.m. in the Sunshine Hall Last Saturday and Sunday saw several ambitious and well-meaning members out in the lot across from Kittclsons' busily engaged in cutting up a huge log into salable bits of firewood. Net result was many aching and strained heretofore unused muscles plus a sizeable pile of stove fodder that will he put on the open market and sold to enrich the staggcring and tottering treasury. The few men who got out in the open air and did the cutting do not regret it a bit for they found that there was a lot of fun doing something that sounds like a lot of work to the casual and disinterested bystander. It is activities like thtosc that give the Post the added dividtond of friendliness.· And inasmuch as this is the only way that we have of raising funds to finance our many yearly projects it is gratifying to know that we number among our mPmbcrship tlwse many members who so willingly enter into these parties.

BANQUET IS CALLED OFF The annual Parkland Comnmnity club banquet, first scheduled for last Thursday's meeting date, then shifted to a February 10 date, has now been indefinitely postponed, it was announced this week by President W. W. Cline. It has not been found possible to s e c u r e sufficient volunteer workers to take care of the hard work and many details such a banquet project entails, is the stated reason for calling off the banquet. Cline ."lnd his officers now plan to substitute a potluck picnic, to be held in June following the final club meeting before the summer suspension. Details of the picnic and several other club projects being considered are to be announced at later dates.


W. W. (Woody) Cline will continue as president of the Parkland Community club through the coming ycar, following unopposed election at the regular January meeting of the club, last Thursday evening in the Parkland school auditorium. Elected to serve with Cline are:

A cori1munit:r newspaper for Midland, Parkland, Brookdale, and Spanaway. Published every Thursday by Beard Printing Co., P. 0 Box 797, Parkland, Washington. Telephone GRanite 7100.

Not Indifference,- We Hope Less than a hundred Parkland residents last Thursday evening chose the officers who for the coming year will have the responsibility of directing the organization which is the nerve center of this community-the Parkland Community club. It is to be hoped that it was not indifference which resulted in such a meagre participation in this community's nearest approach to an election of town officials. Not unlikely, the fact that W. W. Cline, who had demonstrated his competence at the club's helm, was not opposed beforehand may have led many to slight this opportunity for demonstration o(. responsible citizenship on the assumptiorr that all would go as they desired without their active partisanship. The event did bear out such assumption. Mr. Cline was chosen without contention, and we now can look to him for continued efficient and devoted leadership. However, the great chance to show him by votes that the entire community is in back of him has been passed up-that fact must now be demonstrated by active support in the 12 months ahead. That the integrated development of this community be kept in pace with its population expansion is in large part the responsibility of the Community club. As the coordinating agency for the many and varied local groups, the organization must deal with a succession of problems and projects. Two such problems are now at hand: Securing of proper garbage disposal facilities and obtaining adequate mail distribution. The Parkland Business club has made the opening moves toward realization of the latter project, but is looking to cooperative action by the Community club to speed successful conclusion of the effort to obtain mounted carrier mail aelivery in Parkland.

Why the Delay? Realization of their worst fears, upon the spotlighted tardy discovery of the battered body of Noreen McNicholas, calls forth our deepest sympathy for her unfortunate family.

Already the ball has once been fumbled in the garbage effort. A year will be required to recover the ground lost when none of the several Parkland groups before which the matter was laid saw fit to act promptly. The Spanaway Progressive Community club was in the line-up for the kickoff, but was unable to move ahead alone. Action by the Parkland Community club has now shown the way to recovery, with the whole length of the field still to go. President Cline and his newly-elected officers will now try to call the signals for a unified effort on behalf of the whole -South End district. They have the well wishes of all the community in this and other civic efforts, but they will need to know that they can also get an enthusiastic, response to a call for hard work when that is required.
